Even if you don’t live in the Fairmount Ravine neighborhood – that’s the ravine running under the eastern Admiral Way Bridge, from east Alki up to Admiral – you might consider helping out with neighbors’ upcoming annual cleanup. From Sarah Schieron:
Please mark your calendars for the 22nd (!) anniversary of our neighborhood’s annual clean-up of the Fairmount Ravine. This local natural treasure needs the loving care of our community to help remove garbage and invasive plants each year. Please join us to give this special greenbelt the TLC it deserves.
*Saturday, March 15th, 8:30 am (stay as little or as long as you can)
*Meet at the top of the hill at Fairmount and Forest – directly east of Hiawatha Park
*Please wear gloves, boots and old clothes as we remove garbage and invasive plants
*All ages welcome – my two kids (5 and 2) truly enjoy this experience each year.
*Rain or shine
*We hope to see some of you soon!
